moment by moment, I build the necklace of my day, stringing together the choices that form artful living! I simply adore this quote by Julia Cameron. I have recently discovered her writings...she is the author of 'The Artists Way' and many other works. Laying out ways to overcome creative blocks and generally living an artful life. I highly recommend reading her.
I've combined a mother lode of challenges with my work today. The sketch challenge on SCS, my friend, Kelly's week 2 Words on Wednesday, and the 365 Card Blog ad inspiration. It is such fun when you can make multiple challenges zing! So for structure, the SC244 fit beautifully. Kelly's word today was impearl: to form into pearls; or adorn with pearls. And the 365 call was a White House~Black Market print ad : menswear pumps, a floral teapot and a single flower in a vase of water.
The papers I chose are a men's wear grey flannel stripe, 'Recognition' from Basic Grey's Stella Ruby and Boxer's 'Long Underwear'. The clock paper is from Graphic 45. My solids very Su's very vanilla and Georgia Pacific's white card stock. The quote is a Hampton Art Stamp and the woman with the pearl earring (hee, hee) and necklace is an old Hero Arts called Party Pearls!
I used Memento Tuxedo Black for both. Copics for coloring. Liquid pearls in white opal were used on the necklace.
Thanks so very much for visiting and I appreciate your thoughtful comments.
